Can I just say that I love leather cording? It is a flexible material, inexpensive, comes in sizes and beautiful colors, and gives a lot of “look” to a piece of jewelry. Enough said. And while big name jewelry designers, one named C*** L**, are charging big money for their pieces, the two knock-off styles shown here are easy to make. I will say that I do appreciate CL’s sense of design and color. The pricing remains puzzling to me.
This bracelet was made with a deep red 1.5 mm leather cording, bright silver ball chain, wrapped up in a tan waxed Irish linen cord. Somewhere in the garage a small screw is missing it’s little nut. Try it yourself! Adding the link for this tutorial.
Ball Chain and Leather Bracelet
Various odd stones, beads, and a charm were slipped onto a series of square knots in this 36 inch necklace.
It probably took 15 minutes and I had the great joy of designing and making it. Priceless!
